The Kindred Spirits Orchestra returns to the CBC Glenn Gould Studio for a special concert featuring renowned Italian conductor Maestro Stefano Vignati and the brilliant Canadian violinist Aaron Schwebel. Written years after the original opera’s fruition, Verdi’s Overture to La forza del destino is a gripping and illustrative prelude that is recurrently performed autonomously in concert halls. Composed during the turbulent years of the early twentieth century, Prokofiev’s output was the most prolific as he penned his wildly dreamy and spirited Concerto No. 1 for Violin and Orchestra. Premiered only days before Tchaikovsky’s sudden death, makes his final Symphony No. 6 “Pathétique”, a truly desperately mournful yet awe-inspiring requiem.
